The last time I went we steered a largely straight line course 020º, there were no overfalls at all to contend with. The NE traffic lane comes up pretty quickly, then there is the SW one to navigate and a big open space on the far side; neither lane has a TSS on that course.
A F4 is a good watershed, so long as there has not been anything big out of the west in the few days before as it takes a while to settle.
Low water on the 7th of May is just before 8am, and is very neapy indeed at less than 2m of tide. (You Jersey lot have more movement in your tea I reckon)
